The newsletter and complementing scavenger hunt questions are both available in 18 languages.
Remote Team Logic Puzzle
Alexis is in charge of a remote team of workers, and is also remote herself. Part of her job requires her to know which employee has what devices, and what training they need to complete.

Online Shopping Scams
They lure people in with unbeatable cheap offers and goods that you can’t get anywhere else: fake shops on the internet. But if you order from them, you risk losing your money and data. And if you do get what you ordered, it usually involves poor quality or knock-offs. Although some websites from fake shops seem to be similar to those of real shops in many ways, this video points out a few things to look for that should make you suspicious. A vailable in English US and German.
Those who voluntarily allow others to access sensitive data are either reckless or have become victims of consent phishing. The hackers’ trick in this type of attack: They use a real authentication dialogue from conventional office tools – but with evil intent.
